Hi everyone, I am Jeff a grateful believer in Christ Jesus who struggles with choosing the world over God (and 12 step humor). I am christian who is interested in the pursuit of truth in my life. Denial of heart issues in my life has been an enormous source of pain in my life. As a follower of God I am therefore seeking opportunities find people with similar desires to myself in my pursuit of truth. Not only for my edification but to pass on to others. Right now I am a nurses assistant at a memory care facility in Tri-Cities WA. I have participated in leadership positions with college, young adult, and recovery ministry teams (go Celebrate Recovery!!)
I am getting married in less than 90 days (to an amazing christian woman) and moving to Minnesota for school shortly after that. I grew up in a christian home that had its issues, but placed in me the faith that I have today.
I have a beautiful family and extended family with beliefs ranging from highly charismatic, to ultra conservative, to new age. I want to meet my family members where they are at and do my best to love them. It is my desire to hear them out even as I put forth my ideas (which I pray line up with the truth, God help me do this).
I love… absolutely love biographies and testimonies. I have read books on Lincoln, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Marten Luther, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. (and I am always looking for more)
I enjoy some contemporary authors and their faith journeys like Mosab Hassan Yousef, Lee Strobel, and John Eldredge.
Praying for you all.
